Just got a call about doing a 10 minute drive in which the horizon needs to be rock solid. Client is thinking Steadicam, possibly with gyros. I'm thinking that's a good call, but for truly rock solid horizons, might be better to use a Mako or Perfect Horizon head on sticks.

Anything else you might suggest?

Steadicam is the wrong tool for that shot, Libra head with additional stabilization in post if needed
